Online Municipal Case Resolution – No Court Appearance Required

Rahway Municipal Court now offers online tickets review to dispute certain moving violations through the ONLINE MUNICIPAL CASE RESOLUTION SYSTEM. By having a moving violation reviewed online, it is not necessary to make any court appearance. Simply visit njmcdirect.com and enter your ticket information to see if your offense is eligible and select the option for Case Dispute. Eligible traffic tickets will be reviewed by a prosecutor and you will be notified with his recommendation. To see if you are eligible to have your matter reviewed online, please visit njmcdirect.com.

If your matter is not eligible for online ticket review, you can still request to have certain tickets heard in the Rahway Municipal Court. Should you have any questions, do not hesitate to reach out to our office.

Municipal Court sessions will now be conducted virtually/remotely to minimize exposure to COVID-19.  Accordingly, all complainants, defendants, attorneys, victims are to contact the municipal court via email at rahwaymunicipalcourt@cityofrahway.com or at 732-827-2039 to provide your full name, e-mail address, and cell phone number within seven days of a court notice.
